The torrential and unprecedented rains in Kerala has caused wide spread disruption in normal activities of the people of the state. With our Electrominerals Division which contributes about 26% of our standalone revenues operating from this region, this release is being made by the Company to provide an update on the impact of the rains on our operations.

The facilities at Edapally, Koratty and Kakkanad are all safe and continue to be in operation. However, the hydro power plant of the Company generating power for captive consumption of the Electrominerals division at Maniyar has been flooded and is currently not generating power. The employees working in this plant are been moved to safety. The non-generation of power by the plant has so far not impacted the operations of our facilities in Kerala which continue to be in operation.
